As many residents of Haddenham will have spotted, another episode of Midsomer Murders has been filmed in the village over the last few days, with Church End as a primary backdrop.

Ever keen to assist the local constabulary, your website editor did all he could to offer his services as a police photographer. Sadly, this was not greeted with much enthusiasm by those responsible for crafting this particular examination of evil goings on in rural Buckinghamshire.
